A new report says the pandemic has led to a nearly 82% reduction in tribal gaming payments to the state of Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Policy Forum released an analysis Thursday that found tribal gaming payments to the state's general fund were only $5.3 million in fiscal year 2020. That's down from $29.1 million a year earlier.

The pandemic forced tribes to close their casinos for two months last spring and cut back on other business at their hotels and restaurants. The state Department of Administration initially projected the tribes would ship $27 million to the general fund in 2021 but now expects they will give the state nothing this fiscal year.
